On May 21, the Presidium of the Third Session of the 13th National People’s Congress (NPC) of China has made the decision that the the upcoming Session will deliberate on draft Decision on the Establishment and Framework of the Legal System and Enforcement Mechanism for the Safeguarding of National Security in the Hong Kong SAR.

National security is an important cornerstone of peace and stability of any country. Maintaining national security serves the fundamental interests of people of all ethnic groups in China, including compatriots in Hong Kong. The fourth plenary session of the 19th CPC Central Committee clearly proposed the improvement of the legal system and implementation mechanism for the special administrative regions to safeguard national security. The Hong Kong SAR is an inseparable part of the People's Republic of China, and the National People's Congress is the highest authority in the country.

It is absolutely necessary for the NPC to exercise the functions and powers entrusted to it by the Constitution, to establish and improve the legal system and enforcement mechanism of the HKSAR to safeguard national security at the national level, and to uphold and improve the governance system of “one country, two systems” in light of the new situation and requirement.
